Grilled BBQ Chicken Burritos

After the Kraft coupon bonanza last month I have a lot of BBQ sauce. And to be honest, Kraft BBQ sauce is not my favorite, but free is free and I couldn't pass it up (actually, I made about $4.00 buying my 8 bottles - sweet!). So, I'm coming up with recipes where I jazz it up - giving it more flavor and personality. This one is adapted from a recipe in the Kraft Food and Family monthly magazine. In order to keep costs down, I decreased the amount of chicken and added black beans. Pretty much anytime I make a hispanic dish, I cut the amount of meat down and add black beans instead. They are very good for you and are super cheap. I make these on the grill because I like how the tortilla crisps up, and it doesn't heat up my house. See the recipe here.

Mission whole wheat tortillas - $2.76 / 10, used 8, total - $2.21
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts - $1.69 / lb at Buy Low, total - $1.00
